As agricultural producers face ongoing uncertainties with pesticide regulations, the National Agricultural Law Center (NALC) offers a timely webinar on May 15 titled “The Deal with Dicamba - Overview of Recent Legal Developments.” The webinar aims to clarify the recent upheavals in the regulation of dicamba, a pesticide critical to modern farming practices.

The discussion, led by NALC staff attorney Brigit Rollins, will address the implications of a February 6 decision by the U.S. District Court of Arizona, which has raised questions about the continued use of over-the-top dicamba applications. This ruling and subsequent EPA responses have created a patchwork of regulations affecting farmers across the U.S.

Participants will gain insights into how these legal changes impact agricultural production and what future adjustments might be expected. The webinar will also cover the EPA’s current policies allowing the use of existing dicamba stocks and the variability of these rules across different states.

This educational session is designed to help farmers, agricultural professionals, and policymakers understand the shifting legal landscape and prepare for potential changes in pesticide usage. The NALC’s role in providing nonpartisan, research-based information makes this webinar a valuable resource for those looking to stay informed on critical issues affecting agricultural law and policy.

Registration for the webinar is open and free, offering an excellent opportunity for those in the agricultural sector to learn more about dicamba’s legal status and prepare for future regulatory environments.
